Burj Rafal Hotel Kempinski Riyadh has partnered with the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH) to educate students about the hospitality industry.
Under the guidance of His Royal Highness Prince Sultan bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, president and chairman of the board of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), the property’s partnership with the SCTH, will benefit from cooperation from Ministry of Labor and Ministry of Education.
The programme aims to raise awareness among young Saudis about the hospitality field, and to attract more to join this industry.
With 15 students from Al-Sahafa private high school, the first training course started with a tour of all hotel departments, with introduction from each department head. Then, the students met a number of Saudi employees to discuss working in the field. More info
